Thyroid cancer is the most prevalent endocrine malignancy.Papillary thyroid carcinomas and follicular thyroid carcinomas account for 95% of all thyroid cancer cases. They are clinically classified as well-differentiated thyroid carcinomas due to their biological behavior resembling normal follicular cells and good responsiveness to surgery and radioiodine therapy . However, they are usually curable when discovered at early stages, but survival rates may be reduced from 100% in ...
In order to learn more about follicular lymphoma and anti-cancer vaccines, we are collecting samples from people with this diagnosis. We then hope to make a vaccine from this tissue to help the immune system destroy cancer cells. We plan on keeping samples in the tissue bank indefinitely.
To describe the outcome of patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer treated with hyperfractionated radiotherapy and concomitant chemotherapy
The prevalence of thyroid nodule is worldwide high. About 40% of normal population has thyroid nodules and about 5% are malignancy. It is important to differentiate malignancy from benign nodules because the management is completely different. Nowadays, the gold standard is fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) examination. The overall sensitivity and specificity is fair (~90%), but still has its limitation that some results are indeterminate in about 15% of the nodules. These...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about patients with thyroid cancer or thyroid nodules may help the study of thyroid cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This study is gathering information and tissue, blood, and urine samples from patients with thyroid cancer or thyroid nodules.
As many as 70-85% subjects diagnosed with a follicular lesion on biopsy and undergoing surgery will have benign lesions verified by histopathology after surgery. Currently there is no method of pre-operatively diagnosing benign follicular lesions, as a result these subjects will have had surgery for diagnosis of a benign lesion. The aim of this study is to see whether shear-wave elastography, a new ultrasound technology can help pre-operatively diagnose benign follicular lesi...
To investigate the genetic mutations of patients with thyroid carcinoma and find molecular targets for therapy.
The aims of this trial are to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of pemetrexed + paclitaxel in patients with recurrent/advanced follicular, papillary or anaplastic thyroid cancer.
Human thyroglobulin (Tg) is the most sensitive biochemical marker for recurrence of differentiated cancer (DTC), especially after the complete removal of thyroid tissue through surgery and radioiodine therapy (RIT). Unfortunately, current assays for measuring Tg in blood samples are not sensitive enough to reliably measure Tg while patients are under thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Instead patients have to withdraw thyroid hormone for several weeks or receive costly injec...
The objective of our study is to determine which factors affect willingness to participate in gynecologic oncology clinical trials. Women with a diagnosis of gynecologic malignancy will be approached to complete a survey assessing willingness to participate in clinical trials. The validated Attitudes and Randomized Trials Questionnaire (ARTQ) will be used to assess willingness to participate.
The primary purpose of the study is to evaluate objective response rate ([ORR]: complete response [CR] and partial response [PR]) by investigator review in participants with anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) treated with lenvatinib.
Currently, the investigators are unaware of any previous studies that have analyzed the relationship between the prevalence of thyroid disease and chronic periodontitis among adults utilizing a retrospective, cross-sectional design. This study will review approximately 900 patient records and compare the prevalence of thyroid disease in three groups with increasing severity of chronic periodontitis.
Participants in this study will be patients diagnosed with or suspected to have a thyroid nodule or thyroid cancer. The main purpose of this study is to further understand the methods for the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. Many of the test performed are in the context of standard medical care that is offered to all patients with thyroid nodules or thyroid cancer. Other tests are performed for research purposes. In addition, blood and ti...
Although thyroid cancers are low-grade endocrine malignancy, most patients usually received thyroidectomy with ablative radioactive iodine therapy. Such patients were followed with thyroid ultrasonography and serial serum thyroglobulin evaluation. Prior researches indicated that one-third well-differentiated thyroid cancers could transform to poorly-differentiated patterns, even to be anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC), a fatal malignancy, and no effective therapeutic strategies w...
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment. PURPOSE: This research study is looking at DNA in blood samples to see how well it predicts response to antibody therapy in patients with follicular lymphoma treated on clinical trials CALGB-50402 or CALGB-50701.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate Vitamin D levels in thyroid cancer patients with active disease compared with thyroid cancer patients in remission and patients with thyroid nodules.
Clinical and subclinical thyroid disease is usually used to describe patients with mild symptoms correlated to hyperthyroid or hypothyroid state. Therapeutic decision for clinical and subclinical thyroid dysfunction should be considered individually. But long term outcome for treatment of such functional and structural thyroid diseases had not been recorded delicately in Taiwan. Further investigations should be observed in the future.The purpose of this study is aiming for earl...
Background: - Researchers are studying types of thyroid cancer that seem to cluster in families. Non-medullary thyroid cancer accounts for the vast majority of all types of thyroid cancer, but little is known about possible genes that may cause the cancer. More research is needed to develop the best ways to screen for familial non-medullary thyroid cancer (FNMTC) so that it can be diagnosed and treated at an early stage. Objectives: - To evaluate the natural h...
To explore how a clinical sample of patients with thyroid nodules (men and women) with no history of thyroid cancer would make decisions about treatments based on different terminology used to describe papillary thyroid cancer (with and without the cancer term).
The purpose of this study is to investigate the association between metabolic syndrome (MS), body mass index (BMI), hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia, hypertension and thyroid cancer. Screen for the risk factors that affect the incidence of thyroid cancer.
Papillary thyroid microcarcinoma are small thyroid cancer measuring 1cm or less. Most of this tumor are not palpable and are identified either through pathologic examination or from imaging modalities, such as CT scan or thyroid sono. Active surveillance of papillary microcarcinoma is to observe thyroid papillary cancer without immediate surgical approach. The purpose of this study is to understand more about the characteristics of papillary microcarcinoma, which has been known...
Study purpose is to evaluate baseline clinical data, outcome after front-line Rituximab containing chemotherapy and survival in patients with grade 3b Follicular Lymphoma. Also an histological central review is planned in order to re-assess baseline diagnosis according to new 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) criteria.
This study will determine if lithium can enhance the treatment effect of low-dose of 131I (radioactive iodine) following surgery in patients with thyroid cancer. 131I is used to destroy any thyroid tissue remaining after surgery. This is called ablation therapy. Doctors often use a high dose of the 131I (100 to 150 millicuries, or mCi) to ensure successful ablation. A lower dose, however, would minimize excess radiation exposure and possible side effects of the treatment. This ...
RATIONALE: Finding genetic markers for thyroid cancer in a biopsy specimen may help doctors diagnose thyroid cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well genetic analysis works in diagnosing thyroid cancer in patients with thyroid nodules.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how common gene mutations are in benign and malignant thyroid lesions.
